The Primary Singing Toolkit

The Primary Singing Toolkit is a free digital resource for primary music teachers, by  the ISM Trust, in partnership with the Voices Foundation and supported by the Schools Music Association (SMA). Discover inspirational and practical singing strategies to enhance your music curriculum, and feel empowered to share the joy of singing with your students. 

Surrey Primary Music Skill Swap 

In recent months we have had requests from teachers and from our Primary Music Advisory Group to help facilitate networking and skill sharing between teachers in their localities.   

In order to help this take place we have set up the Surrey Primary Music Skill Swap.

 This is a simple, but open-ended survey form which you can complete on line.  You can use it to note any specific music expertise or experience that you might be willing to share, as well as outlining knowledge you would be interested in finding out more about.  You can also indicate if you would like to join another teacher for general reflection / co-observation etc.

Completing the survey should only take a few minutes.  We hope to share the results of the survey with all participating teachers early in the New Year.  We hope this new tool will help to build up strong links between school music leaders and enable you to build and share skills more effectively.
